It’s most photographers dream to publish a book. It’s the ultimate expression of ones long journey to put a project to rest between two covers. We want to celebrate the photographers creative vision of their work in book-form. But the photo book industry makes this dream expensive and sometimes exclusive. The Bursa Photo Festival invites you to submit your book dummy for consideration to be judged by publishers, educators, and editors, attending the festival. Your project should be near completion. The winners book will be published before the Bursa Foto Fest 2013.
All efforts will be made to keep the photographers original vision with help from designers. 1500 copies of the book will be printed in Turkey. No entry fee.
Please label the packaging as “Bursa Photofest Dummy Book Contest” and send your dummies to
Bursa Fotograf Sanati Dernegi
Gurabahane Laklakan Kultur Merkezi
Kayhan Mh. Selcuk Hatun Sk. No:9
16230 Osmangazi Bursa TURKEY
All dummies will be returned after the festival ends. Final deadline for admission is 15th of September, 2012
Or hand deliver your book dummy if you are coming to Bursa.
